Tuesday 31st March- English

Today is Terrific Tuesday!

Today you will be writing your acrostic poem about Spring. What is an acrostic poem you ask. A common type of acrostic poem is where the first letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. I have attached a few examples of my own below.

You will need to use some of the keywords you wrote yesterday to write your poem. Make it as creative as possible.

WMAG Acrostic Poem

-Short, snappy sentences

-Relevant keywords

-Expanded noun phrases

-Features of a poem (Rhyme and alliteration)

-Commas

After you have written your Spring acrostic poem go back and edit it to make it even better. Refer to your WMAG Acrostic poem and write an improved version, maybe even give it a spring border.

Challenge: Type your final version of your acrostic poem in the comments for me to read 🙂

  1. Smell lovely daffodils across the path
    Prancing bunnies through the grass
    Rainbows every where across the sky
    I love fresh air so much
    No Easter celebration’s until it’s April
    Grass freshly cut

    Miss Shake,
    hope you like this acrostic poem.

    1. I love your poem Sophia. I think there are some sentences where you could add expanded noun phrases and commas. If you have some free time see if you can improve your sentence 🙂
      Keep up the great work

      1. Thank you Miss Shakes, I have updated my poem:
        Smell lovely, yellow daffodils across the small path
        Prancing soft, white bunnies through the grass
        Rainbows everywhere across the bright, blue sky
        I love clear, fresh air so much
        No Easter celebration’s until it’s April
        Grass freshly cut

        I think this poem is better.

  3. Well done Nora. I think you can extended your sentences to add detail to your poem. Can you add an expanded noun phrase and commas?

  4. Sun comes out but not all the time
    Petals grow on flower to flower
    Rain patters down on your face
    In the wood there are fresh green leaves
    Nights are lighter days are brighter
    Grass grows nice and tall

    1. I really enjoyed your use of SRPING in your acrostic poem. I like that you included connectives, but don’t forget to use a comma before it. Your use of adjectives and verbs help me to see the sun, rain falling, the petals on the flowers with the tall grass. Well done.

  5. Singing birds in the bright, blue sky
    Playing children everyday
    Rainbows come out, after the rain
    I can hear the chicks cheeping
    Noisy lambs bleating in the field
    Green grass is growing fast

    People shouting spring is happy today
    Running around makes you happy

    Night time comes and the day is over

    1. I really enjoyed your use of SRPING in your acrostic poem. There is a spelling mistake, which I’m sure you’ll notice when you read it again and I also like your inclusion of adjectives and verbs in it.

  7. Sun rising early, bright day ahead
    People smiling at the new season
    Rainfall makes the flowers smell lovely
    I wish it was Spring everyday
    Nothing quite like the sound of the birds, chirping & singing away
    Green grass, blue skies, warm sunshine, what a wonderful day!

  8. Spring Spring, let the sun shine in
    Pretty flowers everywhere
    Rain may come but it soon goes
    It really helps everything grow
    Never get bored of looking at lambs and little chicks
    Great games we can play outdoors, like Pooh Sticks!

    Dear Miss Shakes
    Hope you like my poem.
    Love Amber

  9. Chicks are born on the farm
    Horses baby foals start to walk
    On the farm it is very sunny
    Children like to stroke the little soft lamb.
    Orange leaves from autum gone, green leaves start to grow on.
    Lovely lambs so fluffly and white
    Adventures begin for little little animals.
    Two ducks start to quack
    Everyone is so happy that
    Spring is here

  10. Baby lambs,
    Lovely petals,on the grassy ground.
    Oak trees standing tall
    Still and beautiful petals that the wind softly blows,
    Sun brightly shining, on the beautiful blossom
    One child playing;
    Making pink lemonade in the sunny shade.

  11. Sunshine glows above me.
    Peacefully scented flowers are joyful. Rain makes wet puddles playful. I can hear birds tweeting happily. Now, in Spring we can eat Easter eggs. Gigantic bunnies are funny!

    1. Well done Sasmeka a lovely acrostic poem. Remember to put a comma in between ‘peacefully’ and ‘scented’.

    2. This is a nice poem Sasmeka, but it’s not laid out as an acrostic poem, because each letter from the word (yours is spring) should start each line. Have another look at the example that was given.
